That would be the perfect jacket for our winters! I wonder if this would make a nice fleece jacket? I want this one! You did a nice job.

Amanda -- I am 5'2" and own several Park Bench Patterns. You're right, they do overwhelm a petite person if left as-is, but the size alteration instructions work pretty well. I think the main thing to bear in mind with PB patterns is that the styling is MEANT to be loose. Don't overdo it and try to make these styles "fit." (I guess this comment is really meant for other petites who might read your review, since you're the right size for these patterns already!)

Julia, your comment is appreciated because even us 5'6"ers might want to make a smaller size just for style. It is nice to know her instructions for doing so work.

Amanda, your jackets look terrific! I love the contrast on the chenille - looks very funky. Thanks for posting your photos and the review.

Lovely job, Amanda! I really like the chenille. I was thinking the same as Dale and wondering if it would work up well in fleece!

They are both lovely, and this kind of pattern gives you a lot of possabilities to do some embellishment if one is interested or leave it as it is and use a gorgeous fabric since the shape is truly nice. You have done a good job!!! Thank you.

Amanda, I just loved both jackets that you made. I recognized 'Emma's Blue' Fabric from the site a while back. The grey is really nice. What you did with reversing the fabric was a great idea. You won't be a beginner long!
